I Forgot #Poetry

I forgot about that time when we met,
And remembered the first time you kissed me.
 
I forgot about the time you were three hours late,
And remembered when you brought me the biggest bouquet of flowers I had ever seen.
 
I forgot about our first little tiff,
And remembered the great make-up sex.
 
I forgot about you getting so angry with me over saying hello to the waiter,
And remembered you telling me that evening that you thought I was the most beautiful person in the entire world.
 
I forgot about the first time you raised your fist to me, because I accidentally creased your best shirt moving in all my clothes,
And remembered our perfect evenings, listening to Chopin & drinking Chianti, telling each other we'd love each other. Always.
 
I forgot about the time you locked me in our room for two days,
And remembered when you opened the door with the biggest diamond ring I have ever seen in my life & asked me to forgive you & promise to never leave you. You just loved me so, so much.
 
I'll forget about all the bruises & blood & marks on my body,
And I'll remember you being so so sorry & that you just can't help it. I just make you crazy and you adore me to the ends of the earth.
 
And I'll forget about the time when you go too far and I forget everything.
